    this picture is first thing in the mornings when the coop has the most sunlight. Do we need a light inside the coop?

    Well apparently it will not upload my photo. My new chickens never came out of the coop today. It was their first day in our coop

    It always takes chickens a while to become comfortable in a new home. Chickens hate change.

    Give them a couple days to get used to the coop. Then, if you have food and water in the coop, move it into the run and they'll come out when they get hungry enough.

    My chickens like to sun bake so I don't know if it's light enough!
